About Shannon

I am a mixed media artist and jewelry designer. My subjects often involve objects I have found in nature or collected in my travels such as: seed pods, insects, botanicals, fossils, feathers, vintage books and maps. My artwork primarily consists of alternative process photography including historic printing processes and non-traditional techniques such as: Polaroid transfer, lumen printing, liquid emulsion, and hand painting. In addition I also use encaustic and vintage ephemera to create mixed media pieces. My jewelry is inspired by natural history and a desire to repurpose and reveal the beauty in uncommon objects. I often use bullet shells, fossils, bones, feathers, copper and semi precious gemstones in my designs. I have participated in many gallery, and alternative space exhibitions and my artwork has been exhibited nationwide with emphasis on the West Coast. I was born, raised and currently reside in the California Bay Area You can find me at the following places:!/shannonamidon
